At the Customs Union and United Economic Area leading body- Eurasian Higher Economic Council session in Minsk the issue of Armenia was discussed without its participation. Politician Stepan Grigoryan isn’t surprised. He doesn’t expect something else, “It means that we are an object, we want to enter but we aren’t heard.”
Politician Levon Shirinyan doesn’t agree. According to his words, Armenia is a partner in the Customs Union, but not a vassal, as many people claim.
“On the background of Ukrainian events, the military value of Armenia as an ally of Russia is high, our importance is increasing,”- he says.
